Advantages of Children’s Audio Books
The establishment of children’s talking books has added a whole new dimension to the old art of story telling and a perfect method of introducing kids to reading and literature.
Main Advantages of Children’s Recorded Books:
• Made interesting by the addition of music and sound effects. A lot of narrated books feature a full cast of actors while many are read out by the author or professional narrators. This usually makes it more interesting than a regular book reading session.
• They make a great learning tool for children who are still picking up words. It gives them the opportunity to learn correct pronunciations and improve the understanding of accent and vocabulary.
• A great way of passing the time when on the move, children get fidgety and find it hard to read while traveling. Lots of kids who suffer from motion sickness and cannot read while on a train or in cars, so listening whilst traveling makes for perfect entertainment as they can easily become engrossed in a good book.
Tip! The use of headphones allows peace and for other traveling companions, namely mum and dad!
• Most experts agree that listening to talking books inspire kids to read! They make a great platform for encouraging children to pick up reading as a habit. It encourages children to pick up books from an early age and leads them into the wonderful world of books.
• They encourage children to imagine, listening to a narrative compels the child to imagine story scenes rather than just look at them in an illustrated children’s book. Todays audio books for kids are accompanied by stunning background music and scintillating sound effects.
